The Sox had their first game against the Royals postponed on Friday, so they opened the series Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, the Royals have been relatively good while the Sox have been relatively bad. This was the case today, as they lost 2-0. » Continue reading “Guthrie’d: White Sox Blanked By Royals”
There were runs. There were lots and lots of runs. And the White Sox scored them all, beating the Indians 11-0. » Continue reading “Too Little, Too Late”
The Sox lost today. But you probably already knew that. The Tigers won. Again, you probably already knew that. The Tragic number at the start of the day was at three. Now it is at one. It wasn’t a pretty start for Jose Quintana who was throwing a bajillion pitches in just the first inning. So many in fact, that Philip Humber was up and warming in the bullpen.
Sure, he settled down but as usual, the offense was just not around today. Yeah, they put up a couple of runs. And yeah, they managed to string together some hits ( a whopping FIVE in total) but it was just too little too late. David Price is a 20-game winner now. There was a brief moment when the Sox looked like they would get to him, but alas, it didn’t happen. Remember when this team was AMAZABALLS with RISP? If you don’t, it’s ok as it was such a long time ago. Now, this team is just looking lifeless. » Continue reading “And Then There Was One”
So Chris Sale didn’t have it today. As usual, the offense not around. Mr. Kate Upton was pitching in Minnesota.
It all results in a tragic number of three. There is still hope, though it grows fainter with each passing game. With the latest loss, all I hear is the following song’s chorus.

What happened tonight? Well, the Twins did the Sox a favor and beat the Tigers. Magic (or Tragic depending on your view) number remains at five games. The Sox still are pretty abysmal with RISP scoring, but they did eek out just enough runs tonight to get a win and cut the lead the Tigers have to just one game. Given how this season has gone, it would be so Tigers and Sox to end up tied in a couple of days. » Continue reading “There Is Hope! White Sox 3 Rays 1″
Yes, White Sox, let’s keep playing horribly. That’s just what you need to get into the postseason. Especially since the Tigers won this afternoon. Unfortunately, the Sox continued to play like crap and lost to the Rays, 3-2. » Continue reading “Falling Further Out”

After playing the way they did tonight, the Sox don’t deserve a shot at the postseason. They lost to the Cleveland Indians, 6-4. Not only did they lose the game, they lost first place in the Central, as the Tigers beat the Royals 5-4. » Continue reading “Adios First Place”
Welp, the AL Central has a tie for first place. After yesterday’s game, I think we are starting to really know some things about the White Sox. A lot of it no so pretty. and if / when they get to the playoffs this season, could be pretty scary. Depending on your viewpoint / outlook, the Magic Number (or Tragic if you will) is at eight. There also eight games left in the season. So what do we know? » Continue reading “What We Know About The White Sox”
Much of my evening consisted of yelling at my TV, telling the Sox to score runs since the Tigers were either winning or had won, depending on the time of yelling. More often than not, the Sox didn’t listen. Thankfully they did at some point, beating the Indians 5-4. This also snapped their ugly losing streak. » Continue reading “Streak Snapped! A Win!”
